YPN Mission Statement

The Mission of YPN is "to provide a forum for African - Americans and other professionals of color to focus their energies on community service, social consciousness, political involvement, and youth mentoring while evolving personally and professionally through its peer network".


YPN's goals are to develop programs that have positive impacts on the at-large Boston communities of color, to develop professional and social programming that surpasses the needs and expectations of young professionals, and to assist ULEM with achieving its goals.
